American Idol: Was the Right Person Voted Off?

There was some bittersweet irony on the American Idol stage tonight as the show's biggest country star, Carrie Underwood, returned to her old stomping grounds to perform a song off her new album. Minutes later, this season's country crooner, Skylar Laine, was sent packing. Mentor Jimmy Iovine was on hand with some commentary, and it appears he just thought Skylar was confused by her songs, saying she didn't seem to understand the lyrics to her choices this week, "Fortunate Son" and "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me."

Hollie Cavanagh was in the bottom two with Skylar, and personally I'm a little surprised she's still around. Admittedly, Skylar's had better weeks, but she's also been a consistent performer. In any case, it's just going to get more emotional from here, folks. With four contestants left, the finale is in sight and that season 11 title could go to any of the remainders. What do you think; was Skylar robbed?
